A Wedding Dress Story by Laura Chyou

A Pnina Tornai Wedding Dress I purchased my dress from Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. The dress is a Pnina Tornai. At the time that I was wedding dress shopping I lived in Boston. My parents and my best friend and her husband flew east and met me and my fiancee in New York. I went with my mom, my dad and my best friend to the Kleinfeld store. It was a pretty amazing experience. Although I’ve heard the store can be crazy with the “Say Yes to the Dress” TV show, I went on a quiet Friday afternoon and had a relaxing and fun...

Hunting the Perfect Wedding Dress My daughter Karla was married on June 21, 2014. We had shopped for dresses at three bridal stores looking for a certain style that neither of them carried. At the fourth shop, Celestial Bride in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, they had the style that we had been looking for and my daughter tried it on. The owner of the shop predicted that she would not like it before she even tried it on and she was right. She had Karla try an Eve of Milady wedding dress that she felt would be perfect for an outdoor wedding, and...

A Wedding Dress story by Katya George

Great Gatsby Wedding Dress Our wedding theme was inspired by “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald so we stylized all the wedding details in art deco 1920’s style. My wedding dress had to go with the vision of the era as well as be comfortable and light enough to dance the night away in a hot month of August. I have to say that the dress found me for there was no real hunt for it. Two months after the engagement, my mom and I went to Moscow, Russia, to visit our family and friends. Since I still had a whole year to...

A Wedding Dress Story: By Lauren Britts

Finding the Wedding Dress: Straps, Silk, and Surprises When I first started dress shopping I envisioned wearing straps, lace and something very antique looking so as to fit with the ceremony venue, the Empire Mine in Grass Valley, CA. We were to be wed at a gold mine afterall! On my first day of wedding dress shopping, lace dress after strappy lace wedding dress I knew it just wasn’t my style. The last dress I tried on was this couture Vwidon ivory, silk magnolia dress at Jin Wang in San Francisco. I immediately fell in love. Tears and...

Wedding Dress Shopping For The Fun of It My husband, Matt, and I were married on June 7th 2014 in Dillon Colorado. The very first time I tried on dresses it was mostly for fun and to try to determine what kind of wedding dress I really wanted because I was torn between two different ideas — a form fitting basic lace gown or a simple satin ball gown look. I made appointments at three different shops and brought along my mom and Matt (because it was all for fun and I didn’t plan on finding a dress yet). I tried on a bunch of dresses at...

A Wedding Dress Story: by Caitlyn

A Wedding Dress Story:  From Magazine to Marriage Once the decision was made to have a destination wedding at our vacation spot in Stone Harbor, N.J., I knew I wanted to find a wedding dress that had more of a casual, nautical feel. Hayley Paige had just introduced “Guindon,” an ivory striped organza gown that I saw in a magazine and it appealed to me because it was a little different. My mother and I searched to find a store that carried that dress but couldn’t find it in our surrounding area. We live in Maryland and...

An Embroidered Wedding Dress Cleaning

All About the Wedding Dress Diana’s silk satin gown is beautiful. Strapless, with a fitted bodice, the wedding dress is embroidered with crystals and seed-beads. The embroidery covers the skirt and the train area. The wedding dress is topped off with a cute bow on the back. When we received the gown, it was very dirty and the train was stained with grease, dirt, and a yellow spill. There were also make-up and perspiration on both underarms and inside the bodice. Pinkish stains dotted the front, in the middle of the embroidery. The...

One Intense Wedding Dress Cleaning

A Beautiful Wedding Dress Gone Bad Edelwisa had a beautiful wedding day in Hawaii. Unfortunately, the beautiful outdoor wedding resulted in chunks of mud gathered on the hem and a smell of algae. It was the first time that we had to open a shipping box outside on its arrival. Clearly, the dress had been well used on the most important day of Edelwisa’s life. We were excited to see what we could do to help. Edelwisa’s gorgeous wedding dress was made by Veluz, a Filipino designer. The dress’s bodice is covered in beads and has...

A Wedding Dress with Pockets

A Wedding Dress Story by Sarah Fribley I bought the gown at Blossom’s Bridal in Dublin, Ca. It is called the “Camilla” by Wtoo. Our wedding was on June 7, 2014 at the UC Botanical Gardens at Berkeley Mather Redwood Grove and the reception was at Piedmont Community hall.  I really loved wearing the dress; it was actually really very comfortable and the best part: it has pockets!!!  I wanted a bridal gown but not one that was typical, and I loved the appliqué.  This one really fits my personality and Chad (my husband) said...
